    Ron Clinton's notable Tweet brags...

    As some here may know, I Tweet a set of pics every day (well, I try for every day, anyhow) of some item from my 3000-plus book collection...might be a signed/limited, might be a rare signed 1st trade, might be a cool Paperbacks From Hell -type horror paperback, might be...well, you get the idea. I do realize, however, that some folks here are probably not on Twitter so may not see them.

    Having just realized I can copy a direct link to a Tweet (with clickable photos), I thought I'd use this thread to note any particularly special Tweets of cool books that folks here might like to see. I won't litter the board with alerts of each day's item -- if you want those (and who wouldn't?? ), please follow me at Twitter at @ron_clinton -- but rather those kind of unique, special items that may deserve special mention. Hopefully the items I'm featuring over at Twitter are cool enough that "special mention" here is justified at least a few times a week.

    Case in point: Today I Tweeted a set of four pics of my lettered edition of Simon Clark's SHE LOVES MONSTERS, a pretty cool item from NEP that's housed in a metal film-reel case, had signed separate artwork, original edited manuscript page, etc. This item can be seen here:

    Enjoy, and keep an eye on this thread for similar alerts...

    Btw, I'm assuming those who do not have a Twitter account can access/see my posts when linked. A favor: If you do not have a Twitter account and are not able to see the Clark book at the above link, please let me know, as that would defeat the purpose of this thread...thanks!

    The link works without - and with - a Twitter account.

    Today’s signed volume is one of my older ones, from 1934. If you like a type of classic macabre that’s difficult to categorize, John Collier’s your man.

    A drawing for a free half-dozen horror paperbacks was just posted:

    https://twitter.com/ron_clinton/stat...024185856?s=21

    If the selection looks of any interest, please enter the drawing…I’d like to think that the random-number generator gods would smile upon one of the good folks here at CD forum.

    Good luck. I am not entering this one as I have read a couple of them and the others would probably be left in the TBR pile for an unreasonable amount of time.

    This may be a dumb question but what is the artwork on your twitter header? I like it.

    I had initially planned on the limited, but when I saw that he was going to sign the trade edition, I went ahead and opted for that one to save a few bucks. If past experience is any gauge, I’ll probably end up loving the collection and regretting the choice, but what’re you gonna do.

    It’s by noted science fiction artist, Richard Powers…he’s the one who did all of those surreal, abstract science fiction paperback covers back in the ‘50s and ‘60s.
